GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — A lawyer for one of three University of North Carolina-Greensboro employees fired for falsifying time sheets says she has reached a settlement with the school.

Attorney Seth Cohen told the News & Record of Greensboro ( ) that Lyda Carpen will get about $29,000 in back pay and $9,000 to pay her legal bills. The university also changed her personnel records to show she resigned from the school instead of being fired.

Carpen and two other employees in the University Relations Department were fired and arrested in September after the school said they used university equipment for freelance jobs.

The criminal charges were later dropped.
